In some good news for Harry Potter fans, they can now explore the shops of magical Diagon Alley from Harry Potter through Google Maps.

Google has added the Diagon Alley movie set at Warner Bros Studios in London, England on its Street View programme.

Diagon Alley is a row of shops that sell wizarding goods in the Potter books and films.

In Street View mode, visitors can see 360-degree images of Ollivanders Wand Shop, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes joke shop and Mr Mulpepper's Apothecary.

Warner Bros Studio Tour said the Diagon Alley set took more than three months to build, and it took six months to create over 20,000 products to put on the shops' shelves, '' reported.

In the Potter books by author JK Rowling, all items on the Hogwarts supply list can be bought at Diagon Alley.

The alley is completely hidden from the Muggle world which is right outside of its boundaries. It is very large in area and essentially the centre of wizarding London.
